force save dialog box on link
Posted on 2003-11-24
i use this code to display a picture link reference that opens an adobe pdf file:
<img src="buttons/opensave.gif" border="0" width="60" height="50" align="right"></p></a>
i would like the link to force the viewers browser to show the "save / open" dialogue box so that the file doesn't automatically open in the main frame window, and they have a choice to save the file to their desktop.
i also would like to know if there is a way to automatically specify and maybe create a destination folder named "pdf" where this pdf file will be saved. a dialogue can ask the user if he would like to create the new folder named "pdf."
